This year, why not take advantage of your Labor Day weekend and immerse yourself in the history and culture of St. Augustine’s 450th Anniversary Celebration! Starting on Friday, September 4th and continuing on through Tuesday, September 8th, the city of St. Augustine will be celebrating with special events highlighting the four and a half centuries of history that has been written there. St. Augustine’s tourism industry thrives daily, growing without any kind of special celebration. Just imagine what is in store for everyone as they celebrate the founding of their beloved hometown, dating all the way back to 1565! There will be a diverse offering of music, a very special street festival, and many more special events (including a rumored special guest!).
Not every day will be as incredible as the days highlighting the festivities, but St. Augustine has become a popular weekend tourist destination, not just for people all over the state of Florida, but for people all over the world. Exposure to global cultures has helped make St. Augustine a destination filled with diversity. St. Augustine is teeming with history, both written and unwritten. Wouldn’t you like the opportunity to add your own chapter to this fantastic story?
Aside from the historic district, St. Augustine is well-known for its extensive offerings of local and world cuisine, a lively and diverse music scene, exquisite and unique shopping, and a historically educational family-friendly environment.
Living in St. Augustine also yields more family bonuses in the form of top-notch schools in the vaunted St. John’s school district, the most desirable district for public education in Northeast Florida. For the adults, St. Augustine also boasts the oldest craft distillery on the First Coast as well as San Sebastian Winery. Don’t forget the trolley tours either! They’re an entertaining way to soak in all the history that makes St. Augustine what it is today.
